Our late summer arrival, the dutch chestnut gelding ORION (Jazz), had a gut debute season with Leonie. This pair won the Grand Prix in Bettenrode and also placed well in Bremen and Allersehl.
A further highlight was their start at the German Classics in Hannover. After placing sixth in the Grand prix they went on to a great ride in the Kur coming third with 73.55%.
As ORION has now been sold, we wish his new rider much success for the coming season.
